Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Can the world recover from the worst economic slump since WWII? | Counting the Cost” – below is their description.

2020 will not be a year many look back on with fondness. Hundreds of millions of people lost their jobs, many millions more succumbed to poverty and more than 1.8 million people died in the pandemic.

The global economy contracted more than at any time since World War II. After a 4.4 percent contraction, the IMF is predicting growth of 5.2 percent this year.

Sami Zeidan is joined by MacroHive CEO Bilal Hafeez, Fidelity International Investment Director Catherine Yeung and UBS Global Wealth Management Chief Economist Paul Donovan to discuss what we can expect from 2021.
